Dear Friends and Colleagues,ISPAD 2013 Conference Presidents: L. Ragnar Hanas, R. Gun Forsander

It is a great pleasure and privilege to invite you to attend the 39th Annual Conference of ISPAD, to be held in Gothenburg, Sweden October 16-19, 2013. ISPAD has grown significantly, and we are happy to invite not only pediatric diabetologists but also internists, diabetes nurses, dietitians as well as psychologists, social workers and other involved in the care of pediatric diabetes from all parts of the world.

Gothenburg is the second biggest city in Sweden and is situated on the west-coast. There are two international airports and there are direct flights connecting Gothenburg from more than 50 European cities.

The ISPAD scientific meeting is always an exciting, special and memorable annual event. We will have plenary sessions, symposia, oral and poster sessions, and workshops addressing the cutting edge science of pediatric diabetes care. The theme of the 2013 meeting will be ”žPediatric Diabetes in a Life-long Perspective”, indicating our ambition to cover important themes from neonatal diabetes to long-term aspects of the disease.

As Sweden has a tradition since decades of high quality national registers of diabetes, we will pay attention to the importance of collecting valid data for outcome measurement and benchmarking to further improve the care of our patients. With high scientific level of the program and nice networking opportunities we intend to offer you an exceptional meeting!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we look forward to welcoming you to Gothenburg 2013.

Best regards,

Signature Ragnar Hanas Signature Gun Forsander
